This bracelet was hand made for me by my brother when we were both teenagers.
Makes it an almost antique!
It is one of my prized possessions.
The Japanese calligraphy stamped on it is our last name, Matsumoto, which means base of the pine tree.
You can tell from all the scratches that it is in well-worn, appreciated and enjoyed piece of jewelry.
Thanks again Sam. I think of you every time I wear this. Love, Paula.
